County Ethics Board Meeting Set
An ethics board meeting has been scheduled for the La Crosse county administrator. Steve O'Malley asked for the ethics board to review his advocacy for an April binding referendum that would have led to the hiring of a professional administrator in the city of La Crosse. Under its ethical guidelines, O'Malley's professional association says advocating for a manager-type form of government is acceptable. But La Crosse Tea Party members say O'Malley violated state ethics laws and, possibly, federal campaign restrictions. The three person ethics board meets on Thursday.
